The STCU grant process consists of three main stages: Short form application, Full form application and the Project Agreement stage. Please review the "Typical STCU Project Lifecycle" for a simplified graphic view of the STCU Project Process.
The STCU does not manage projects. Rather it administrates and oversees projects on behalf of the funding parties. The responsibility of managing any given project lies entirely with the project manager. The Project Agreement, which consists of the main body of the agreement, the work plan (Annex I - supported by the schedule, personnel, and funding tables), the General Conditions (Annex II), and the Formats for Progress and Technical Reports (Annex III) outline the specific issues for which the project manager is responsible.
Private companies, industry organizations, government agencies and programs from Canada, European Union, and the USA can apply for Partner Status.
